biden may be accelerating that process. maybe it is already starting. host: does president obama have to choose because of the divided congress? does he have to choose immigration and gun control? guest: there are all kinds of things that congress must do in terms of spending. we have the sequestration, and expiring continuing resolution that is funding the government, and the debt ceiling. they will consume congress because republicans and democrats do not agree on how to resolve them. he is going to leave the president tied up. you have to do with these things. immigration and gun control and gay marriage our wish list items. immigration is a big issue. that will be very hard to move something that is progressive or liberal with a divided congress. we all know that an assault weapon ban will not get to the house. it is possible they will get from checks. it may be scaled back urgent of what the president talked about yesterday. in full-scale he will not he able get an assault weapons ban through. that probably will not happen. the spending issues, he will have to deal with. choices

on the multinational stage. when vice president biden sat on this chair, he said on more than one occasion, good international relationships are always predicated on strong interpersonal reproliferationships. i think we can all agree that you have set the highest standard for developing those relationships throughout your career, and as secretary of state, you will continue to strengthen those relationships on behalf of the president and the furtherance of american foreign policy. i'll have some questions later on policies and your views, including how you explain to world leaders how you could have been rooting for the boston red sox instead of what the world knows as the new york yankees as the team of the world, but let me say, mr. chairman, it's been a pleasure working with you and looking forward to continuing to work with you in the issues you've championed over the years. fighting global terrorism, preventing the spread of nuclear biological, chemical weapons, fighting for human rights and against hiv-aids around the world, fighting crime, corruption, drug trafficking and standing up, as

by then-senator joe biden, was a watershed moment in our history. in the years since, we have come together in a bipartisan way to re-authorize and expand the reach of this law. now we must do it again. the last congress had the opportunity to take this action. the senate passed a strong bill with a bipartisan vote of 68-31. 68-31. yet house republicans refused to bring the senate's bipartisan bill to the floor, leaving millions without a critical line of defense against domestic violence. this congress has a chance to correct the mistake without further delay. today with 158 co-sponsors and counting, that's in the house, including every woman democrat in the house, democrats are re-introducing the re-authorization of the violence against women act which would expand protections to lgbt, immigrants and native americans. this has bipartisan support in the senate, including key women senators. it is bipartisan. and time for the house republicans to join suit and join the senate in a bipartisan backing of this measure. failure to enact this bill would deprive women and children of vit
